This could have ended more than anger with a grim face expression. I think nobody got hurt? On the other hand, I'd like to hear the story.

Land safely

Speaks well for the flame retardant materials in the cabin. Overall it does not look that bad, mainly cleanup plus a seat and armrest.

This is an ignorance  and  big luck  at the same time. All flying machines are so fragile to the fire. I have never witnessed  a fire, just watched a video footage of an unfortunate event ( ignorance of safety rules of course) and  know 60 seconds are  enough to consume UH-1 Huey.

So good to be very careful.

Safe landings.
